Lindsay Lohan Gets on the Wrong Side of Indian Authorities


Lindsay Lohan may well get into the “immigration blacklist” of the Indian government because of certain irregularities during her visit last December, British The Telegraph reports. Coming to India with the aim of filming a documentary about child labor and human trafficking for the BBC, Lohan (as the story runs) happened to be present at a raid on a sweetshop that employed child workers illegally – and managed to save the lives of a number of children.

Exhilarated and bubbling over with excitement, she poured it out on Twitter: “Over 40 children saved so far … Within one day’s work … This is what life is about … Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!”

Her claim was impeached by activists who, feeling that somebody is trying to grab the kudos, indicated that the raid took place before Lohan came to India, so she couldn’t have given a hand with saving the children.

Their attention drawn to this discrepancy, Indian officials conducted an investigation that revealed that the actress went foul of Indian visa rules: at the relevant time possessing no work visa, she was officially a tourist and therefore had no right to film the documentary.

New Delhi authorities are looking into the matter, which may well end up with Lohan getting into their blacklists and denied entrance to the country in future.
